New Delhi: The first official look of Aishwarya Rai Bachchan from her new film Sarbjit has been released and shows the 42-year-old actress sitting at a desk, dressed simply in a salwar kameez.
Aishwarya plays Dalbir Kaur, the sister of Sarbjit Singh who died in a Pakistani jail.
The first look also includes a picture of actor Randeep Hooda, who plays the titular role.
